Ideas of How to Celebrate New Years With Your Family

Share this:

New Years is a time of year when we all reflect on the current year and share hopes and dreams of the arrival of a New Year. New Years is the ideal time to plan a good old fashioned family get together. Kids, as well as parents, will appreciate the memories that you can make with friends and family. So, go ahead, plan your New Years Celebration now!

Plan your New Years Celebration with the realization that most younger kids will not stay awake until midnight. That’s OK. Just realize that you need to have a place for them to sleep while the clock strikes midnight.

Invite friends and families to come over about 7:00 p.m., this gives you five hours of good old fashioned togetherness. Invest in pizza, popcorn, party hats, noisemakers, balloons, juice, soda, and a new board game or two. Kids will enjoy blowing up balloons and hanging them up. If you have kids that are under three years old, it’s probably best to skip the balloons. In place of balloons, you could hang up some streamers. This gives all of your family and friends the chance to experience the New Year with a little bit of color!

The PS3 Gaming System offers some fabulous dancing video games that will get everyone up and moving! Family friendly video games are a win, win for everyone. Your New Years celebration will be one with fabulous memories when you take the time to plan.

Plan your menu now and shop at least one day ahead of your big party. New Year’s Eve can be a very busy time at the grocery store. Eliminate the added shopping stress in your life by planning ahead. Test your gaming system, DVD players, and any other electronic devices you know you will be using the night of your New Years Celebration, to be sure everything is working.

A New Year is just around the corner. Plan your get together with family and friends today. Enjoy your New Year’s Celebration and make lots of fun memories for your friends and family. Oh yeah, and one more thing- Be sure your camcorders and cameras are ready to go. Your kids will love looking back at pictures of how they celebrated New Years 2013. Hello 2013!

    For the first time in about 4 or so years (and before that it was a while), I got to see my musician husband at midnight. He got home from his gig at 23:28:30!

    Thanks for all these idea for New Years alot of families think its mostly for the adults to bring in the New Year. This past year my grandson stayed up with me and had fun yelling happy new year at 12:00 while I was sleepy and ready for bed LOL.

    The best New Year's Eve party we had when our son was young was when we invited several families over for a sleepover. We celebrated with the young ones at 10pm, then we adults celebrated at midnight. More people showed up when we had brunch the next morning. So fun! And all the families that spent the night were from our neighborhood, so no one drove.
